2 Rating Posted by: sixflags3 on 5/30/2003 9:17:00 PM
Well im here judging the ride...not the line..since my last review i gave it a 2. Well this ride was great...ive never been so scared on a ride in my life...even though i was disappointed about the length of the ride but its a first of its kind so i shouldnt take that into perspective.

A 2?!?!?!?!? A 2!?!?!?!? A 2 is pretty low,for any coaster... It wasnt even worth a 5?

Though I havent been on it, Id say the fastest and tallest coaster in the world deserves a little more than a 2.

I know that sometimes when I wait a very long time for a very short ride it tends to diminish the ride experience because expectations get raised too high. Perhaps he should give it another chance later in the season when the lines arent so long.

I think its ridiculous when people give rides low ratings because of the wait. When you get in line you know how long you are going to wait. Also, you can tell just by watching a train launch how quickly the ride is over. Those two things said, it is ridiculous to complain about it, knowing what you are getting yourself into. Maybe you just shouldnt have ridden it knowing that the line was to be long and the ride to be short, if that is not something you like.
Also, I find it hard to believe that you could have been quite possibly the only person to ever ride this and not be screaming in joy at the end like everyone else on the train at the brake run. This ride certainly does not deserve a 2.

But, it is ridiculous when you wait for three hours, and then they close it down. By the way, I know they say they dont know the problem. It was my way of letting out steam for how long I waited for this ride and then they closed it as I was at the station. Even if the ride sucked, look at the marvedlous architecture of this ride. Think of all the people that put this together, and HOw much accomplishment that they got by making this. Then just like that, because you waited and you didnt like the ride, you diss Almost 4 years of work on this piece of art. I have not ridden it yet, but I know that because of all of this, it will be well worth the wait and a wonderful experience. I mean, where else can you go 120 mph, 420 ft in the air with no helmet or windshield, legally????

i wouldnt want to wait for any ride for a line thats gunna be over 3 or 4 hours. in that time ill go do some other coaster or something, and ill come back to the park to do that ride some other day.

SixFlags3, I do not see how this ride is a 2. "i waited 3 hours for a 15 second ride", well first of all it is 17 seconds, but that doesnt matter. I would never judge a ride (which is what we do here, we judge the ride, nothing else) by the amount of time I waited. I go all the time and wait 15 minutes at the drive-through at Burger Kind because I like their food. If I would judge my experience with Burger King by the time I waited to get my food, I would never return, but I dont. I go back all the time.

You are just probably upset Cedar Point finally broke Superman: The Escapes height and now you cant say you have the tallest coaster in the world (even though it isnt a coaster, its a thrill ride).

Top Thrill Dragster is a great coaster, and should not get anything below an 8. If you want it to be longer, then go to Knotts and ride Xcelerator.

After Millennium Force, Cedar Point saw that everyone loved the speed. So we all got Top Thrill Dragster. Cedar Point also saw that enthusiants complained about there being too many overbanked turns on MF. If you want a longer ride, go ride MF with its overbanked turns.

Also, Top Thrill Dragster is a prototype ride. It will have bugs in it, and it will break down. However, Cedar Point is doing a great job about it.

Also, to make it clear I am not anti-Six Flags. I just think they want my money. X is one of my favorite coasters.

Good review!

I hate to bug you again, but: as much as Id LOVE to see Dragster at the top of the rankings, I only wish for that because of how well the ride is liked. Hopefully your 9 is an honest rating and not based on judgements passed by people like me previously. I do remain firm on believing that this does not deserve a two--in fact, nothing below a 7 sounds plausible to me. Aside from all of that, your new review is great because it focuses on the ride.

Having just learned about this Dragster, nonetheless seeing photos/footage of it - how could anyone give it a 2 for being "too short"? Hell, it could be 8 seconds long, but at that speed, height, and utter intensity, Id gladly wait 2-3 hours. Being as in love as I am with Millenium Force, I cant wait to make the trip to check out this one. Lets just hope its running...
